I have a generalized anxiety disorder controlled with meds and therapy. This time of year is extremely difficult, haven’t been sleeping much and anxiety is returning. Thanksgiving is difficult for me. My three sons and husband go away and leave me every year over the holiday- I’m expected to stay home with the dogs and house and take care of everything here. Being alone kicks up my anxiety and I obsess about them being in a fatal car accident. It’s two weeks away and I’m already a mess. I guess I just wonder how others get through loneliness. Especially around the Holidays.
